Vintage with Joanie Clothing

When I woke up this morning my hair was messy, my skin in some need of a little scrub and I was wearing joggers and a t shirt. I had no idea how sleek and chic a dress could make you feel until I tried on this sassy, sexy dress by Joanie Clothing. I’ve worn many a dress in my lifetime, but none have given me elegance and class such as this. I felt as though I was Holly Golightly every time I passed a mirror. I was half tempted to rename my dog ‘Cat’ and buy myself a luxurious eye mask to fit the part. Alas, a touch of red lipstick and a killer do’ from my mum Shazza put me into character.


Dress: Joanie Clothing* 

Firstly, can I just point out how thrilled I was with both the quality of price of this dress. Joanie kindly sent me this one for review but at ยฃ45 I consider it a steal at the quality of material and detail. The main material of the dress is a jacquard textured pattern, it feels lovely and ‘proper’ making me feel all sassy. I really love the beaded texture around the collar neckline and found this a little elegant nod to the collar trend that is yet to hit my wardrobe.



I’m wearing a size 16 here which is true to size. The length of this dress is WONDERFUL, just hitting above the knee when ‘perching’ and touching the knees when walking.

Joanie feature clothing size 8 to 22 so if you’re looking for something a little unique, a lotta class then head over their website.


That’s enough from me now, I’m off to powder my nose and strut my stuff round Hullywood.
